Man arrested for sex act during massage

Massage therapist charged with sexual battery after DNA sample taken


FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. – A Fort Lauderdale massage therapist was arrested Wednesday for performing a sex act on a sleeping client, according to the Broward Sheriff's Office.

Scott Lloyd Price, 55, was a massage therapist at the Center for Wellness, 4001 North Ocean Drive in Lauderdale-by-the-Sea.

On Nov. 11, the customer arrived for a massage and told detectives that after falling asleep, he awoke to find Price performing oral sex on him. 

The customer said he immediately flipped on his stomach as Price left the room.

The customer was taken to a sexual assault treatment center, and a DNA sample was taken. The sample was identified as Price's DNA, detectives said. 

The arrest report did not indicate whether Price is still employed at the center.

Price was charged with sexual battery and was being held on $5,000 bond, according to jail records.
